HOLA! ^^ ima mexican american that has a C- in spanish class ^_^ lol
lol I see your C - and I raise you...
American Born, I'm a half Mexican, quarter Irish, quarter of only the Lord knows what else, and I failed my college Mexican American Social Studies class, however I passed with an A in my Asian American Social Studies class the very next semester! LOL

Everbody keeps thinking I'm straight up Caucasian cause I look it. I'm so light skinned, but my brother is darker in comparison, so when his friends meet me for the first time, they're like "you two are related?!?" LOL

like, i understand with your friends its okay cuz they know you're hispanic, but im talking about other people you are just acquaintances with.

i dunno, it bothers me a lot. like when people complain about having to learn "mexican" for a language. it's called spanish darn it!
I can top that, I've been threatened with deportation. I'm American born and in college I worked at a Michael's part time and during the Christmas rush a customer wanted a bigger discount than offered and I said the discount was larger than advertised (advertised at 40% off rang up as 42% off), she said she had friends at INS, I told her to go for it.

When I was younger people would ask me about my heritage all the time, so I ask them how much they weigh. If you ask me a personal question, I'll ask you a personal question.

I took spanish in high school and college and don't remember squat.

Anither funny thing is my sister is light skinned and is often mistaken for Italian, and I'm darker and mistaken for Salvadoran, South Asian, or Choctaw, anytime we go somewhere together we're misaken for twins.

thats an inapproprated behavior actually act, to be asking people this kind of questions. but then again there some who just won't listen.

makotohanabi: now thats just rude of this people, its not your fault and if they had complain they should of gone to the store manager.
i had to learn spanish when i was in second grade, i didn;t understand anything and had a hard time writing it. so now i can, but still the writing can stump me sometimes.

100% Mexican and Oh My God Que Viva México, Cabr*nes!!!

when I get the stereotypical comments, I always take out the winning ''keep it going and Ill put your head in my Altar de Muertos'' XDDD

What I mostly get and has become quite a nuisance is the ''OMG LATINA! Latinas are so hot, they have this flava! ALL Latinos can dance!!'' It feels like they have watched too much porn or something, its really annoying.

Yeah. When I play world of warcraft with my friends, there's always complaints from the people playing on the server I play on that there's too many Chinese people playing on there that can only speak Chinese, then it switches over to if that issue also applies to Mexicans playing on the server. The usual racist thing I hear is that "No, the issue doesn't apply to Mexicans because Mexicans aernt real people."

Has anyone ever had hispanics say racist joke on other hispanics, only because I have Cousins who are Puerto Rican and they make cracks on Mexicans and Cubans. Cause they think they are better than they are. And Vice Versa ,Which i dont find funny at all it gets me angry.

*sigh* i absoultely hate comments like this. im not Mexican myself, but my aunt is and its just so frustrating when people act so rude towards Mexicans and just Hispanics in general. it reminds me of a friend i have who is half Mexican and half Japanese, but she looks 100% Japanese. you can just imagine all the Mexican jokes she's heard. we have a lot of race discussions in english class, and its always so interesting to hear what she's witnessed.

switching matters...
*giggle* i couldnt even finish the entire year of AP Spanish IV. i ended up dropping at the semester last year. it's like, i can understand Spanish soooo well, love watching Spanish TV and can read it well, but i cant speak it. my accent isnt all that horrible, but i just never can put together the right sentence when i need it...

^_^ i got lucky in the Latino rhythm department. thankfully. i love to dance! *giggle* been called exotic a few times myself. now, that's a complient that's welcome!

Cosplay Carnde Asada? i'm SO there! ^_______^
